news/washington post poll shows an absolute dead-heat. 48%. still, in those battleground states, a small but steady lead for president obama and it's in the battlegrounds especially those midwestern states of iowa, wisconsin and ohio, where the candidates are making their closing arguments. >> the american auto industry is back on top. osama bin laden is dead. we have made real progress. but, we are here today because we know we got more work to do. >> the question in this election is this, do you want to stay on the course that we are on or do you want real change? because we represent real change. >>> with that, let's hear from the campaign's top strategists. david plouffe and ed gillespie. david, let me begin with you. i know that you have been steadily confident throughout this campaign. but you saw our abc news/washington post poll still absolutely deadlocked. 48-48. how can you remain so confident? >> well, george, we have always known that this was going to be a very close race. but it is going to be decided in the battle ground states. we have an important lead in those
we will have your reaction to the election on "washington journal." calls and comments on twitter. >> to night, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward. [applause] it moves forward because of the issue. it moves forward because you reaffirmed the spirit that has triumphed over war and depression. the spirit that has lifted this pths.ry from the death we are an american family and we rise or fall together as one nation and as one of people. host: c-span coverage of election 2012 continues. here is the updated results. the president got 50% of the popular vote. mitt romney at 48%. 03-206.al votes, 3 0 the democrats have increased their number to 190, it does not add up to 435. some races are still on call. and in the senate, democrats remain in majority. currently at 51, republicans at 45. some races are uncalled. here are some of the newspaper's. usa today -- obama triumphs, midwest is key, political divide remains. years the wall street journal, obama wins. and the washington times, obama
in washington that we've enjoyed so much over the past two years. >> that actually is the question before we get to our panel. we have a lot of the same still to come. what will be different and what is the lesson learned from this? >> well, it's status quo. you've got the president sitting in charge of the executive branch, obviously, president obama. the house remains in republicans' control. and the senate -- i think, you know, big pickup for the depths in the senate. all of these key races that were supposed to be so close got blown out. that's really where the soul searching's going to take place. because as i said i've said repeatedly for four years, when you run in the house, you can beat something with nothing. and i'm living proof of that. i did it in 1994. >> he undercuts himself. >> but when you run in the senate and the electorate expands, you've got to be a bit more toward the middle. and when you run for the white house, you'd better have a governing philosophy that will pull bucks county in pennsylvania, that will pull the i-4 corridor and that will pull these swing states. i'll t
in washington post columnist dana millbank and molly ball. good morning. >> good morning. >> hi. >> let's start by talking about the president's response to the hurricane. a poll shows 78% view his response positively. what do you think, dana? is this helping him? >> well, i think it's sort of unseenly to try to gauge out who benefits from human tragedy. certainly, whoever is in charge, if it's the president, if he doesn't have a hurricane katrina response, there's going to be some rallying effect whenever there's a national crisis. this seems to have benefitted the president. he hasn't made any obvious mistakes. now, of course, there's still a bit of time, but i think by the time people become disenchanted with the response, that'll be sometime after the election day. so it does appear that mother nature is voting democratic this year. >> well, the images of the president and chris christie have been everywhere. of course, christie has been very outspoken as the rnc keynote speaker. he describes obama as, quote, blindly walking around the white house looking for a clue. i think there was a bit
of ohio. >> dr. peterson, "the washington post" to are's point had an article entitled, mitt romney's campaign insults voters. through all the flip-flops there has been one consistency in the campaign of republican president nominee mitt romney, a contempt for the electorate. mr. rrm seems to be betting that voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills and general inability to look behind the curtain. we hope the results tuesday prove him wrong. >> yeah, again, if we put that revenge comment in its proper context, part of what that revenge is about is romney's violation of the public trust. when we look at these different things that have gone on in the campaign, it's very, very difficult to see mitt romney as an authentic campaigner or authentic politician. that's where you get the revenge piece. that's where the oped seems to be right on point. again, we look at a number of different issues. look at the adz playing in ohio right now. you look at that chrysler ad, you look at this desperate republican ad trying to convince black folk that the republican party are on their side.
show. keep it here for complete election coverage. good night from washington d.c.! s almost over. >> bill: the o'reilly factor is on. tonight: >> governor romney is a very talented salesmen. he has tried as hard as he can to repackage the same old bad ideas and make them out to be new ideas. >> the question of this election comes down to this. you want four more years like the last four years? >>. no. >> or do you want real change? >> yeah. >> bill: last-minute campaigning in the race is still tied according to most national polls. but over the weekend there was a momentum shift. we will tell you what happened with brit hume. karl rove and kirsten powers. >> were they denied requests for help during the attack? >> well, we are finding out exactly what happened. >> while the national press has been largely missing in action about libya, some local reporters have grilled the president about it we will show you what happened there. >> he will win the popular by, i think about half a point, electoral college probably a very narrow margin. >> bill: also tonight charles krauthammer wan

look at what's actually going on in washington and add it up that way and not want to punish the republicans for obstruction? >> no. i really can't. when you think about it, the president gets criticized for not reaching across the aisle. what did mitch mcconnell say early on in the first year of president obama's presidency. our number one goal is to make sure barack obama is he's a one term president. he's been faced with resistance by republicans. contrast that to george w. bush. his major initiatives, war in iraq, medicare part d and no child left behind had substantial democratic support. in no child left behind, the leading liberal in the senate ted kennedy joining with president bush to push no child left behind. contrast that to the way the republicans treated barack obama and you see the total hypocrisy of that claim. >> governor, philadelphia aside obama's biggest drop off has been among middle to upper class suburban women. why do you think that is? you know the state. >> because the economy is not doing well. pennsylvania's economy has taken a nose dive since i le

was right the other day when he said he can't change washington from the inside. only from the outside. we're going to give him that chance.
